Is it possible to rename the "Web page" field name on the General User properties tab of ADUC?

I would like to add some information that our organization uses to distinguish cost locations for cross-charging services into a visible field of the General tab of User properties (possibly the Web page) field. I don't want to extend the schema and I don't want to create another visible column, I would like this information (a 6 digit number) to appear on the General tab.  We do not use the "Web page" field for anything so I was hoping to use this.

As far I as I know there is no way to rename a field in AD.

However, what's in a label?  If you were to populate the data into this field and use it accordingly, does it really matter that an Admin using ADUC see's the field labeled incorrectly?

Depending on how you use the field, you could also prefix some text data to clarify the meaning.

For example, if I saw a field in ADUC, labeled Wepage, but the value was "Cost Code=123456", it would be quite obvoius to me that this wasnt a web page but that this objects code code was 123456.

With me or making no sense???

Also, be careful what field you choose, if you start using Sharepoint (for example) then the webpage field might be more meaningful.
